Azure Devops "Advanced Installer Tool Installer" extension what licence type does is support

Thu Jul 22, 2021 10:50 am

Hello,

When using the Azure DevOps "Advanced Installer Tool Installer" extension you need to specify an Advanced Installer licence.

Advanced Installer has two different licences types. An assigned individual licence and a floating licence assigned using your licence server. What type of licence does this Azure DevOps extension support?

Thanks
Duncan

Hello Duncan,

Both license types should be supported.

Providing the license is necessary because, as you probably have noticed from the pipeline logs, everytime a "Build" operation is performed, the latest version of Advanced Installer is downloaded:

and registered, ensuring that the build process will be successful (i.e. if you have a Professional license and in your project you try to edit some dialogs using the "Dialog Editor" that is available starting with our Enterprise suite, the project will go into trial mode).

Hope this helps!

Hello,

A follow-up to this. We tried using a floating licence and got an error that only assigned individual licences are supported. So you have to use an assigned individual licence and cannot use a floating licence.

The Advanced Installer licencing requirements for build machines that perform builds for multiple users must use a floating licence and can not use an assigned individual licence. it appears that the Azure Devops "Advanced Installer Tool Installer" extension does not follow this requirement. Is this by design?

Thanks
Duncan

Hello Duncan,

Please disregard my previous thread, as it looks like I was wrong.

It is indeed true that only per-developer licenses are supported in Azure DevOps.

Please forward me your license key by email at support at advancedinstaller dot com and we will sort this out as soon as possible.
